Megyn Kelly is badass — that guy was calling maternity leave “a racket.” He was saying women shouldn’t get paid for it, and Megyn Kelly was just like “RARRRRRRR.” Never get between a mama grizzly and her maternity leave!

She’s making quite a spirited argument: that workers are entitled to certain benefits, and that society has an interest in protecting these benefits! Which is great — and really weird, because that’s not the Fox Megyn Kelly that I thought I knew. …She used to hate entitlement programs, mandated benefits and things like that.

…You see, this is the problem with entitlements: they’re really only entitlements (to you) when it’s something other people want. When it’s something you want, they’re a hallmark of a civilized society; the foundation of a great people. “I just had a baby and found out maternity leave strengthens society! But since I still have a job, unemployment benefits (for everyone else) are really socialism.

More simply, (plays George Carlin’s famous “Have you noticed that their stuff is ‘shit,’ and your shit is ‘stuff’?” bit). Once again, George Carlin says in a sentence what took us three-and-a-half minutes.

So either Megyn Kelly has inadvertently exposed the hypocrisy at the heart of conservative demonization of unions and the working class, or — Oh my God, it’s worse than we thought: Megyn Kelly is suffering from post-partum compassion. (Beat.) It’ll pass.

Brilliant.

That’s why it’s called “concealed.”

What timing!
And a lesson to politicians never to allow phallic objects anywhere near them in public.

I can’t…………….lolololololol

It will take away choice from the American people.

Michelle Bachmann, on Obamacare

This is just stupid. Obama’s health care plan gives one more choice to everybody already covered and gives one affordable choice to those without insurance. It’s that simple, or at least it would be if the Republicans hadn’t mindlessly batted the legislation to death to make it acceptable. Also, since when does Michelle Bachmann care about choice?

P.S. This quote is real, unlike that one a few days ago, which was satire.

(via deathbypolitics)

SO NOW SHE CARES ABOUT “CHOICE.”

(via seriouslyamerica)

Bachmann chooses to be an asshole. So in a way she’s always cared about choice.

Ann Coulter (via goodreasonnews)

Ladies and Gents, Ann Coulter!  Once again proving she is neither a woman or a human being!

God, but she is an insufferable fucking cunt.  She would make me twice as ragey if I didn’t realize intellectually she merely spews the crap she does in an effort to gain any kind of “relevancy”.

Can we take away her right to speak? Or exist?

The Fox News solution: more discrimination, less pay, less benefits.



In other words, “Please, federal government, please let us pay our workers five dollars a day so we can hire 12 people for the price of one!  Lookee, more jobs!!”

Fucking Christ.

Is this fucking for real? Basically “give us free reign to treat people like shit, pay them nothing, and we’ll just GIVE jobs away!”
Fuck you.

Oh so paying people less than living wage is going to encourage more people to get jobs? RIGHT OH YEAH SO THEN YOU CAN FUCKING WORK THREE INSTEAD OF ONE JOB! I see how that’s job growth!!! Wow!
Fuck you Fox News, fuck you and all your bullshit.

MHP theorizes about how race effects Obama’s Presidency

Gene Lyons accuses MHP of “whining, compares her to Michele Bachmann & says PhD’s are trained to find racist symbols in passing clouds

Joan Walsh gets into the act

As does EJ Graff

MHP responds to criticisms of her criticisms

Gene Lyons can go eat a bag of expired, sour dicks and also!

Welp………….

The world’s shortest horror story.

Michele Bachmann is real.

(Source: vioforte)

To counter the negative diva buzz as most Americans face hard economic times, Mrs. Obama somehow managed to turn up at an Alexandria Va. Target (with her “shopping assistant” in tow). Snortalicious headline: “Michelle Obama shops incognito at Target…” Such tools. Looks like she left the bling at home. But her shirt and sunglasses are about as “incognito” as Lady Gaga’s outfit at her younger sister’s graduation.

Fox News’ Michelle Matkin, attacking Michelle Obama for… shopping at Target, and being too flashy?

Looks like she left the bling at home.

(via reallyfoxnews)

Our FLOTUS knows how to get things done.  Are there pics of Laura Bush or Nancy Reagan running around WalMart?

Meanwhile, Fox is all over the ‘racist asshole’ angle.

(via jumblejo)

She “somehow managed” to turn up at Target? What does that mean? Did she perform some sort of magic trick?

I somehow manage to turn up at Target about twice a week. I know, I know. It’s tricky, but I still manage.

Conservatives Are Outraged … at Herman Cain
It’s been a tough couple of weeks for Rick Perry, and now, with the Washington Post throwing him into a racial controversy, things are about to get … much better! Wait, what? Let’s backtrack a bit. Yesterday, the Post published a bombshell story about a hunting camp the Perry family has leased on and off since the early eighties. 
[…]
Asked yesterday about the story, [Herman] Cain, the only black Republican in the race, lashed out at Perry. “Since Governor Perry has been going there for years to hunt, I think that it shows a lack of sensitivity for a long time of not taking that word off of that rock and renaming the place,” Cain said on This Week.
[…]
Cain’s reaction is certainly understandable. Anyone could find the revelations offensive, and Cain is a black man who grew up in the segregated South. And yet, as Michael Tomasky points out today, it’s Cain, not Perry, who could be damaged the most by this story. To understand why, you have to consider that there are two things Republicans hate more than anything. One is being accused of racism, which has happened with increasing frequency since President Obama became president, and, if you ask Republicans, is never, ever justified. Two is unfair treatment by the allegedly biased mainstream media. So among Republicans, the widespread response to the Post story was not, “wow, Rick Perry messed up.” It was, “the liberal media is smearing another Republican as a racist!”


Please, God. Don’t make me have to defend Herman Cain. This is such a sick joke. Please?!?!?!!?!?!?
